Will Technology Progress Enough Over The Next Billion Years to Save Us From The Dying Sun?


So you think the human race is going to survive the next billion years?

We have been on the last few moments of the doomsday clock since the invention of nuclear weapons. The fact that a small group of bad actors has the bomb keeps that clock at nearly midnight perpetually.

The story is too old to be commented.
